Local students are getting a helping hand with the new school year from patrons of the Sparta Athletic Campus thanks to a school supplies drive orchestrated by Membership Services Coordinator and Personal Trainer Charlene Beebe. The fitness center is soliciting the donation of new backpacks, notebooks, folders, glue and glue sticks, crayons, markers, highlighters, erasers, pencil sharpeners, loose leafed paper, rulers, and scissors through August 13th. “The Sparta Athletic Campus has always tried to support local charities and we are very fond of Project Self-Sufficiency because they do so much for so many,” commented Beebe, pointing out that past drives have contributed toys, diapers, and food for the agency’s clientele. “We like to help out in any way that we can.”
